Finished this today, took me 15.5 hours in total, completion percentage was 55%.

After Venus there wasn't really much more to do really, you go back to the Sub and then go back to the Alzmeister (same ship from the first mission) to hijack it. I was expecting to explore different parts of the ship and for there to be some humongous boss fight but it was exactly the same environs I'd explored at the start of the game and there wasn't really any boss fight as such, just two bigger robot dudes to take down (which were very easy with my fully upgraded dual-shotty's). 

The Epilogue after this was fantastic though. You fly to California on the Alzmeister, sneak into a studio where Herr Engel is on a chat show with a fake Jimmy Kimmel type, sneak through the audience, up a lift and around a lighting scaffold, eventually burying your hatchet deep in her skull on live TV, screened to all the Nazis around the world, love it! Definitely a HELL YEAH kind of moment.


The ending was rather abrupt though overall and definitely left me wanting more, I do have a load more Enigma missions to do and I am tempted to go back sometime and finish some of them off, but yeah it was a hell of a ride.

I'm not sure it's my GOTY anymore, I'd say right up until the last couple of missions it easily was but the abrupt nature it ended kind of left a bad taste in my mouth, and it's probably gone down a little in my estimations as a result

It's still an incredible ride though, it goes places I've not seen a lot of games go, has some truly fantastic out-of-this-world cinematic moments with historical characters that you never thought you'd see in a game, it's so incredible well written and acted too. The feeling of running down a hallway with dual shotguns mowing down tons of Nazis just cannot be surpassed, such tremendous fun.

Finally managed to capture some pics:

I learned that a lot of other people are having problems with the difficulty so I'm going to drop the level down I think.

BJ is made of glass in this, goes down so quick.

Okay, a lot of people are talking about how hard this game is. I would love to hear a statement from the developers about why they chose to make it is hard as it is.

A lot of people just don't know how to run-n-gun effectively and probably haven't got the Shotgun yet :D

Had no issues with the difficulty, I actually thought it was a little easy if anything, just challenging enough for me.

Nope, didn't even know I could manual save until the penultimate mission :)

The manual for this game is amazing.

It's like the ones you get with the old Grand Theft Autos
?

The manual I got in the game case was just a folded double side of paper with the controls on, plus a flyer for Evil Within 2. Also got a 48 page 'TV Magazine' & travel card holder as I'd bought the Welcome to Amerika box.

I'm guessing the manual you got might be just including some 'highlights' from the TV mag ?

Yeah it's the TV guide thing. I just thought it was really well done.

I could not dig this and regret buying it.

Really surprised because I loved doom.
